Start and Grow Enterprise


Marketing Gloucester

Our Start and Grow Enterprise Entrepreneurs’ Network events run monthly, from 5.30-7.30pm, for Gloucestershire based entrepreneurs and SMEs. We feature a different guest speaker with a different focus each time. This month’s event is based on the brand new retail innovation initiative in Gloucester City Centre. Emily at Marketing Gloucester will explain what the initiative offers to start-up businesses just like you.

These brilliant events offer a chance to gain valuable tips and insights from other start-ups and entrepreneurs.

You’ll connect and share skills, and hear about the support available to your new or growing business from Start and Grow Enterprise, University of Gloucestershire, and more.

Refreshments are provided, and parking is available on-site (for £2 for the day by card).


Details of this month’s speaker

Hear from Jason and Emily who’ll be telling us all about the Digital Retail Innovation Centre (DRIC), an exciting regeneration project for the Eastgate Centre in Gloucester with a focus on supporting retail entrepreneurs and businesses.

This will form the national centre for testing and developing new digital innovations helping to shape and inform the future of cities, with a focus on retail. It will provide support in the form of an incubator, access to new technologies, upskilling and development for entrepreneurs. All of this will be based on the top floor of the Eastgate Centre.

Read more about this fantastic development here.
